I love to change the decor in my home with every season. This week I’ve been pulling out all my fall foliage, pumpkins, gourds, and festive autumn bouquets to decorate my mantle, tables, and vases. I love to incorporate cute crafts the kids make for each season into our decor too. Check this Super Easy Paper Bag Pumpkin craft below.
How to Make Our Super Easy Paper Bag Pumpkin craft
Well it really is so simple it doesn’t involve much explanation at all as you can tell from our photos! The kids can whip this easy to do craft together in about 5 minutes or less. I also love that this a cute craft that both preschool kids can physically make while our older elementary school aged kids also enjoy making it too!
Materials Needed to Make the Paper Bag Pumpkin Craft
The great thing about this simple craft is you’ll likely have all the materials required already at home. I keep a stocked craft closet with paint, ribbon, and glitter from Walmart so I’m generally set to decorate all kinds of goodies when the kids are ready to get their craft.
Brown Paper Bags
Green Ribbon for a stem
Orange paint or Markers to color or paint your Pumpkin Orange
Newspaper to crumple into a ball to stuff your paper bag
Simply stuff your paper bag with Newspaper crumbled into a a big fluffy loose ball. Then tie your bag with green ribbon to create a stem. Next, let the kids paint or color their pumpkin orange. If the kids want to get fancier they can even make it a Jack-O-Lantern for Halloween!
